How to commission a painting

For a while now, I've been debating whether or not to accept paid commissions - I've had several requests recently, and have decided to offer a paid commission service to people. If it takes off, great, if it doesn't, I'll just carry on painting to raise money for the charities I support.

If you are interested in a paid commission, here's the guidelines so you know what to expect:

  • I will happily paint most images, with the exception of anything that is violent or exploitative - I get to call that one.

  • You send me a high-resolution file of the image you'd like me to paint, to canvas and paints, I'll then contact you to discuss what you'd like.

  • You then pay me via PayPal, as soon as I receive the money, I start your painting.

  • I will post updates of your painting in progress, so you can see it develop, and when its finished, I'll post it to you, anywhere in the world that the post office sends parcels. Postage and tracking costs are included in the total price you pay.

To give you an idea of pricing, here are some example paintings, and their costs:

An A4 image of Red XIII would be £40 - as would any single character image on canvas board.

An A4 image from Professor Layton would cost £50 - as would any image on stretched canvas.

An A2 image - eg Post 217 from Scribblenauts would cost £300 on stretched canvas.

Larger images would depend on the availability of the canvas, and would be by negotiation.

If you're interested, email me - that doesn't commit either of us to anything, there's no commitment on either side until I accept your money!
